Alabama: Flag Company Swamped With Orders For Confederate Flags

On top of this wonderful news, polls have repeatedly demonstrated that folks still harbor majority support for the iconic symbol.

By Marcus Cicero

A flag-producing company in the Alabama city of Huntsville has announced in a soul-warming interview that demand for symbols of the Confederacy has reached an all-time high, proving that love and pride for the South still holds strong.

According to Belinda Kennedy, owner of Alabama Flag & Banner, orders from across the world have left her staff swamped, and increasing the wait time for new requests.

Despite monumental support from all quarters, Kennedy also claims that hatred from enemies has increased exponentially, with crude verbal attacks from Jews, Marxists, Liberals, and diversity-addicted Neo-Conservatives pouring in during the last few weeks.

Ms. Kennedy claims that demand has forced the temporary shelving of hand-sown flags in favor of a faster assembly line process.

When the controversy over the Confederate flag erupted last month, the owner of a Huntsville flag company said her business would make the flags even if no one else would.

And that’s apparently what’s happened.

“I’m not aware of another company in the United States making these flags,” said Belinda Kennedy, owner of Alabama Flag & Banner, in an interview Thursday with AL.com.

“We are getting absolutely swamped,” Kennedy said. “It’s let up a little but what we’re finding is that people are still wanting the really pretty sewn, the ones that are more like a piece of art with the sewn stripes and the applique stars. Those are really labor intensive and it takes a long time. We’re still being flooded with orders for those. We’re getting tons of overseas orders. We’re going as fast as we can.”

“I’ve been called a racist,” Kennedy said. “I’ve been called a bigot. I’ve been called a non-Christian. I’ve been called a little bit of everything. I’ve had a few people threaten to boycott me. But that’s, by and large, a drop in a swimming pool to the outpouring of support I’ve received, which is amazing.”

“In the very beginning, we basically stopped production on the sewn flag, applique flag because it was so labor intensive,” Kennedy said. “All we were focusing on in the beginning was doing the print.”

At this moment, one should do all they can to obtain a Confederate battle flag, as there is currently little that angers the enemies of traditional blood and culture more than the banner of Southern defiance.

Take heart from the story of Belinda Kennedy, and stand proud against those who wish us to be broken and destroyed.

  1. And did anyone spite this woman for being a card-carrying Capitalist? Gee, why not! All those fruity commies all around this nation? I bet her shop ain’t union, either!!

    She has my support, in fact…..lemme see……ah! Later, all! Shopping!!

  2. The same think happened with Little Rock Flag and Banner. They sold out and the NAACP marched in front of the store demanding they get rid of any and all Confederate merchandise. The owner refused. It made state news I’m told.

  3. If this country continues on this course, manufacturing or displaying Conf. flags will be a hate crime.

    University students in Massachusetts who were upset by an image of a Confederate flag sticker on another student’s laptop were offered counseling services at Framingham State University.

    The offer came after the university’s “chief diversity and inclusion officer,” Sean Huddleston, described the display of the small Confederate flag sticker as a “bias incident.”

    According to Metrowest Daily News, students filed two “bias reports” within the past month as a result of a student displaying the flag in some way. The most recent bias incident – reported on November 19 – was a report of a student having seen a Confederate flag sticker on another student’s laptop.(snip)

    Huddleston said the flag and other symbols “are not condoned by Framingham State University, as they violate the core values of our institution and not considered consistent with our desire to maintain a safe, respectful and welcoming campus community for all.”

    He further described “bias incidents” as “situations that may not rise to the level of a criminal act, but still clearly communicate offensive or derogatory behaviors.”

    Observing that students on campus in general may have suffered a traumatic reaction from seeing an image of the Confederate flag, Huddleston continued, “We recognize that bias incidents are upsetting for the entire campus community, but especially for the target(s) and witness(es) of these incidents.”

    RICHMOND CO., VA (WWBT) Confederate symbols will come down from the St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, as the congregation said it is a step forward in a journey for ‘racial reconciliation.’

    St. Paul’s Episcopal Church has served as a cornerstone for the Confederacy. It is believed that Jefferson Davis was sitting inside the church when he received word from Robert E. Lee that he had to surrender, and the evacuation of Richmond began.

    For months, the Vestry has discussed the possibility of removing certain items. Recent events throughout the country sparked the discussion, with the church holding ‘Prayerful Conversations’ to discuss concerns.

    In a statement, the Vestry wrote, “St. Paul’s will immediately begin a process to engage the congregation in an extensive conversation about St. Paul’s history, the role of race and slavery in that history and what that history means to the congregation of the church today.” Part of that motion “determined that the symbol of the Confederate battle flag should no longer remain in a church in which all people are welcome.”

  5. I’m sorry to hear what Sam has posted.

    That said, Richmond is, like Atlanta or Birmingham, city that is part of the Yankee One-world government, and, as such, these things are to be expected.

    As a North Carolinian, living in the state long infamous/famous as, ‘the most progressive southern state’, I’m incredibly pleased and shockt to find the government in our capital, Raleigh – as leftist as that town is – protecting our heritage – whether the governor is saying no to President Obama on the refugee issue, or whether he is signing into law a bill making it virtually impossible to move or alter any of our historick monuments.

    Though I was sceptical of The Tea Party, in it’s inception, I have been pleased to return home after a long absence and see what they have done in our state, since they took over in 2012.

    Suddenly North Carolina seems like a national breakwater against leftism and, as Sam has coined, ‘cucktianity’.

  6. ‘If the cultural terrorists of the Left decide to place the Confederacy in the same restricted corner as the Third Reich, laugh at their insults and ranting, for you are better and tougher than they can ever be.’

    I appreciate the bolstering words, yet, I cannot laugh – for I am aghast at the left in this country having gone from being protectors of freedom of expression, to the implacable foes of it.

    Thinking about how life was, when I was a child in the sixties, and where it is now, this is one area that has flabbergasted me – utterly.
